The <thead> HTML element is used to group the header content in a table. It is typically used to contain the table header rows (<tr>) that define the column labels or titles.

Here’s an example of how to use the <thead> element:

      <td>John Doe</td>
      <td>New York</td>
      <td>Jane Smith</td>

In this example, the <thead> element is used to group the table header row (<tr>) that contains the column labels: “Name,” “Age,” and “City.” The actual data rows are placed within the <tbody> element, which represents the main body content of the table.

By using the <thead> element, you help visually distinguish the header content from the data rows and provide a clear association between the column labels and their corresponding data.

It’s important to note that the <thead> element is optional. If your table doesn’t have a specific header row or if the column labels are placed within the first row of the table, you can omit the <thead> element and directly use the <tr> elements for the column labels.
